Russian Strike Destroys Massive Formation of Howitzers

Drone video released by Russian sources shows the destruction of at least 32 D-20 Howitzers belonging to the Ukrainian Armed Forces. The weapon systems were stored at a facility in Okhtyrka which is located in the Sumy region of Ukraine.


It is worth noting, that a cursory glance at the location over time on Google Maps will tell you that the location has been utilized to store the weapon systems for some time. This means that the systems were likely damaged or destroyed, and the Ukrainians were using them as a spare parts graveyard to keep other systems throughout the front-lines operational.


You can check out this spot on Google maps to see the facility. 50.36685508955246, 34.94996830890091


In that image, we can see there was roughly 46 systems at the location. In the video above, there are only about 32 remaining, meaning the weapons were either being returned to service, or fully canalized to make other systems operational.
